About Adam Wallacavage

Inspired by sea adventure stories, gaudy church ornamentation, and interior design, Adam Wallacavage is best known for his octopus chandeliers that mix Art Nouveau motifs and surrealist imagination. Wallacavage casts the forms using traditional ornamental plastering techniques, then paints them with pigmented epoxy resin, iridescent powders, and glitter. Initially trained as a photographer, in 2006 Wallacavage published Monster Size Monsters, a book of colorful, highly saturated photos of artists, musicians, and skateboarders, as well as a range of oddities such as taxidermy.
